Letter from Rep. Tom Tancredo to MLB on the name "Chinese Taipei"

Fascinating to find the text of Tancredo's letter to MLB. I didn't know Taiwan is the only participant not allowed to show its flag on the WBC website---instead its Olympic Committee banner is shown. It's not even allowed to use its name, Taiwan, or Republic of China, but must use the term Chinese Taipei. Tancredo points out the Puerto Rican team isn't forced to use the name "American San Juan." Of course, the Peoples Republic of China is an entirely different country, a communist dictatorship.
